19th Century Staffordshire jug depicting PAUL PRY. Circa 1840.

The name 'Paul Pry' originates from an 1823 play by John Poole - Paul Pry being cast as a busybody, unable to mind his own business. The name stuck and has applied to eavesdroppers and busybodies ever since. In Victorian times there was even a scandalous news sheet published under the same name.
